How to Pick a Bicycle : How to Pick a Women’s Bike


Hello, this is Aaron Phillips with Expert
Village. This is choosing the right bike for you. This here is a womans specific full suspension
mountain bike, in this case the Cona Lisa DS for dual suspension. This is my wife’s
bike and she chose it, with lots to say, she really liked the color, pretty blue color.
There are a whole bunch of other reasons that a woman might want to be on a specific bike.
For example, here you got a saddle, that’s designed for a woman, this is the WTB She,
I think it’s called the Speed She, and this is just designed nicely for kind of, to fit
a womans anatomy a little better than some of the other saddles out there. Also if you
look from this hand to this hand, I don’t have a comparison, but this is actually a
little bit shorter, the typical bike built for men, the top tube, here, this is the top
tube, is a shorter span on the typical woman specific mountain bike or bike in general,
woman tend to have longer legs and shorter torsos than men so this bike is designed to
fit a woman nicely. So we got dual suspension, so if you look, we got rear suspension, we
got front suspension, we’ve got hydraulic disc brakes, which really give us a huge amount
of stopping power, in fact, so much stopping power you have to be careful not to go over
the bars. Got some nice aggressive treads here, allows you to corner and brake with
confidence out there on the trail. And this bike is fitted with just simple platform pedals,
rather than just a clip-less pedal, which many mountain bikers prefer, sometimes running
a platform pedal like this is just a lot more comfortable, if you kinda want to get off
and walk around, get off the bike easily, you don’t have to have a specialized pair
of shoes, you can just use any pair of shoes, especially kind of vans, tights, skateboarding
shoes are great for riding bikes with pedals like this. Like with any mountain bike you
got, well here I think you got a nine speed rear cassette and three cogs on the train
reel up front, three train reels up front, which give you twenty-seven gears. And this
bike is a nice little trail ready womans specific, pretty colored mountain bike.
